USA secretary of state Rex Tillerson and national security advisor General HR McMaster said Trump did not discuss "sources, methods or military operations" in a meeting with Lavrov last week.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says it is clear that Russian Federation meddled in last year's presidential election, and that Washington and Moscow will not be able to restart with "a clean slate".
"I think it just speaks to a level of dysfunction at the State Department, in terms of at least the communications effort that I think is truly remarkable", Kirby said.

He said this. "In a recent address to State Department employees Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, 'Conditioning our foreign policy too heavily on values creates obstacles to advance our national interests'". He added that the impact of that meddling was "inconclusive". "I think it's in the interest of the American people, it's in the interest of Russian Federation, the rest of the world, that we do something to see if we can not improve the relationship between the two greatest nuclear powers in the world". The Secretary of State has previously said he is committed to improving relations, but he tempered any expectations for a Russian "reset" like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton attempted in 2009.

"We're starting with the slate we have and all the problems that are on that slate".
Tillerson said that debate over Comey's firing doesn't affect him and that he understands the line between serving the president and serving the people. "I can't really answer that".
The former Exxon chief executive expounded on what he called "a distinction between values and policy" in charting US efforts overseas. "Policy has to be tailored to the individual situation".
The best way to promote American values, Tillerson maintained, is to achieve U.S.
When asked what the line was between service to the country and the president was, Tillerson stated that he would never compromise his own values.
